A Snowy Drumheller Elopement

A Snowy Drumheller Elopement

-15°C November day. We froze our butts off during this snowy winter elopement in Drumheller, Alberta. But it was so worth it because Geraldine & Kyle’s love for each other was the only thing that mattered. We drove from Calgary to Drumheller which is supposed to be the desert of Alberta, but instead it was covered in snow and didn’t feel too much like a desert. We explored the Hoodoos Trail and got some amazing photos. The beautiful bouquet and flower crown were created by Creative Edge Flowers YYC, and the macrame bouquet wrap was created by Urban Desert Decor+.

    What a beautiful day! Love the macrame wrap on the bouquet that is super unique! Really amazing to see Drumheller totally covered in snow it really transforms the place!

  2. Meg says:

    Wow!! These images have such a remote and romantic vibe to them! I love how you captured these. I just saw a local apothecary offering classes on how to make your own macrame. I need to know because the bouquet application is perfect. What a great idea! The macrame really compliments her dress, too!

  3. Afton says:

    Drumheller is gorgeous year-round but there’s just something I love about that warm golden hour light in winter! You captured this perfectly!

  4. Heather says:

    Oh so cool!!! We visited Drumheller a few years ago on our Alberta trip– really cool place. We went mostly for the dinosaur museum hahahaha. These images are beautiful!! <3

"Liv is extremely talented and great to work with! She gave us enough direction in our shoots to know what to do but still left tons of room for candid, genuine moments. Nothing beats seeing real smiles and laughter in your photos! She was more than willing to collaborate and go for some sillier ideas, and was always super encouraging. She's an incredibly sweet person and we felt very comfortable to be ourselves around her. Liv's talent is beyond just the technical knowledge, she really has an artist eye for beautiful photos. Her editing style is perfect, not too dark or light but still brings personality with the warm tones she adds. I HIGHLY recommend working with Liv!!"
